Prayer Works

1 John 4:4

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Now this verse has helped me through a lot of situations. Often times, you will find that the closer you get to God the more battles you have to overcome. This is a natural progression. My Bishop once told us that as he got elevated in the church, he got more demons trying to block his path. But as you grow closer to God, you will notice that your strength and ability to deal with the problems that surround you will grow as well. That is what my relationship with God does for me.

It changes the way negativity affects me. It helps me to be more optimistic about my future and appreciative of the lessons of my past. When I put God first in everything that I do, everything ALWAYS fall into place. Now, that is not to say that I get everything that I WANT, but surely I do have all the things that I NEED!! And when people try to push me into the wrong direction or test my faith, I always think to myself, their is NO situation that I cannot overcome because…Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world!!!!
